What principle of PRINCE2 supports planning only to a level of detail that is manageable and foreseeable?

Options are :

  • Continued Business Justification
  • Manage by Exception
  • Focus on Products
  • Manage by Stages

Answer : Manage by Stages

Explanation The principle is called "Manage by Stages?. Every project has a "Planning Horizon", which is the limit beyond which meaningful planning cannot be undertaken. To tackle problems associated with this, PRINCE2 divides work into discrete management stages. Detailed planning can be undertaken for current stage, whereas plans for the whole project can remain in an outlined format. A significant advantage of this approach is that learning from earlier stages can be carried forward into later stages.
